Each Friday we feature a new Poll Position question and invite you to weigh in on a hot topic facing the LGBT community.

Since we've launched Poll Position we've tackled glitter-bombing, teachers coming out in the classroom, and the issue of whether or not celebrities have a responsibility to come out.

This week we have another celebrity-related question inspired by Kirk Cameron's recent controversial appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight."

While being interviewed, Cameron spoke out against homosexuality and marriage equality and his comments were met with outrage by many, including GLAAD and some fellow celebrities.

We're wondering if you feel that celebrities should speak out on political and/or moral issues?

Does their place in the spotlight mean that their opinion should be heard and valued? Or should stars keep their mouths shut?

Vote below and share your opinion in the comment section.
